Why does the media lie about race? Why do they lie to cover-up for Barack Obama? It’s started out as embarrassing and pathetic. But it’s moved onto pure fraud.
Why does the media allow Obama to give press conferences about the handful of black Americans killed by police officers, but never mention the police officers murdered by black criminals? It happens all the time, but Obama never says a word about it.
That’s his prerogative. But it’s the media’s job to question him…to point out the inconsistencies…to call him on the hypocrisy and what looks to both police officers and law-abiding citizens as a dangerous double standard that incites violence against police.

Why does the media allow Obama to call Tea Party activists bad people, violent or radicals…when there is not one instance in history of violence or anyone recommending violence at any Tea Party rally. Yet the same media has video proof of protestors at the anti-police rallies Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder encourage, screaming in unison "What do we want? DEAD COPS." It's all on video. Then when police officers are murdered, the media never assigns any blame to the president.
Why does the media allow Obama to give press conferences about the handful of black Americans shot by white people (like Trayvon Martin shot by George Zimmerman), despite these cases being rare, but never mention the hourly murder of blacks by blacks, including the fact that 93 percent of all black murders are committed by blacks …never mention black on black storeowner crime (like looting and burning in Ferguson)…never mention black-on-police crime…never mention the out of control murder wave perpetrated by black criminals upon innocent black youth in inner cities like Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore or Memphis?
Where are the nationwide protests for the thousands of innocent black lives taken by black criminals? Is there no money or media headlines or political gain in those kind of protests?
Why doesn’t the media ask the president if black on black crime matters to him? If so, why has he never chosen to speak out about it? Why don’t they ask Obama to name one victim of black on black crime in Chicago this past weekend? Can he name anyone in the past year? Why are their deaths unimportant, insignificant, and anonymous?

Why not ask Obama and Attorney General Holder why there aren’t teams of Justice Department investigators and prosecutors assigned to black-on-black murders in Chicago (Obama’s hometown)? Why isn’t the same amount of “boots on the ground” assigned to overwhelm black-on-black crime scenes as aimed towards a white police officer like Darren Wilson in Ferguson?
Shouldn’t the media question why the federal government calls it a “hate crime” if a white person kills a black man - even if it was in self defense and the black man had a criminal record - but there are black on white murders every day. One happened to a white Bosnian immigrant driving through a black neighborhood in St. Louis only days after the Ferguson verdict. His fiancé watched him be murdered by a gang of black criminals who had allegedly yelled racist threats before the mob attack.
Yet there is no “hate crime” designation for that murder…no civil rights investigation…no federal intervention…no national media headlines…no coast-to-coast protests…no press conferences by the president or Al Sharpton. Where is the media? Silent.
What about Al Sharpton? Shouldn’t the media be pointing out that a known racist rabble-rouser who was allegedly involved in drug dealing…who was filmed negotiating cocaine deals (the video aired on HBO)... who was a federal informant doing business with the mob...who tried to destroy the lives of police and prosecutors back in the 1980’s based on false rape allegations (see Tawana Brawley) …who owes over $4 million dollars in back taxes (as reported by the New York Times)…is one of Obama’s BFF (best friends forever) and has visited the White House 81 times …to give the president of the United States advice on race relations.
Are you kidding me? Saturday Night Live couldn't make this story up. It's the story of the century and the mainstream media doesn't care.

Where is the media questioning the role of a race baiter and conman (Sharpton) hanging out in the White House with the president?
What’s the difference between Sharpton and a David Duke? Both are racists and haters. Both have made money trying to cause racial division and stir up violence. The only difference I can think of is that David Duke was never involved with the mob…has no background in drug dealing…and doesn’t owe the IRS over $4 million.
Shouldn’t the media be asking Obama why he isn't embarrassed and ashamed to have a man like Sharpton step foot in the people's house?
Shouldn’t the media be asking what’s the difference between white Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and Al Sharpton? Bundy owed a disputed $1 million dollars in back fees to the government, so the government raided his ranch with militarized SWAT teams, airplanes, helicopters and assault weapons. But Sharpton owes over $4 million to the same government and there’s no raid, no threats or intimidation by government, no police surrounding his New York City headquarters.
Remarkably that same guy (Sharpton) gets to pal around with the president of the United States. That same guy gets to give advice on race relations to the president. That same guy gets a national TV show on MSNBC. That same guy makes a living extorting companies in the name of "racism."
If they pay his organization a “consulting fee” he either says nice things about them, or shuts up. But if they don’t pay, he organizes national protests against them. Isn’t that called a "mob shakedown?" Don’t white men with Italian surnames go to prison for decades for the same thing? But a black man involved in the same mob shakedowns gets the red carpet rolled out at the White House? Heck, the president speaks at Sharpton’s events and the media says…nothing.
Shouldn't the media be asking these obvious questions: Don’t police lives matter? Don’t white lives matter? Don’t black kids slaughtered by black criminals matter? Don’t mob shakedowns matter? Doesn’t tax fraud on a massive scale matter?
Apparently none of it matters to the nation’s first black president - as long as the people committing all this violence, murder, fraud, shakedowns, racism and tax evasion on a massive scale are black. And the media says nothing.
Folks, it’s official- we are now living in a Banana Republic.
